During the project phase, higher costs may initially be incurred as processes are set up from scratch. If this is on the agenda anyway, this additional cost is clearly overcompensated, as follow-up investments are avoided. In addition, the added value materializes much earlier and improves the ROI. Gaining access to innovative technologies has the potential to achieve greater customer satisfaction and thus higher revenues, as well as to strengthen the resilience of the company.

• aren’t fully satisfied with more than 95% of their processes and data in the system and whose SAP ECC system is more than five years old.
• have a lot of legacy data and custom code and want to return to SAP standard.
• want to continue to benefit from the latest SAP innovations in the cloud.
• want to realize a risk-minimized approach by migrating in stages.
• want to run the solution in the cloud and also have access to the latest SAP innovations in the future.
• have different legacy systems that need to be harmonized and merged.

But if you do it right, a successful migration lays the foundation for greater resilience and innovative strength – and thus the future-readiness of your company.
